Custom Cargo Organizer
Concept:
This cargo box is a handmade piece as there is no company that manufacturers a storage compartment quite like this. I first made a storage unit of this type 8 years ago for my 1999 3rd Generation 4Runner and that unit can be seen here. The idea here, once again, is a storage unit that does not intrude on the space between the wheelhousings, but can securly hold the essentials I carry around on a daily basis. Additionally it provides a very secure mounting point for a fire extinguisher. This organizer takes advantage of the underutilized space above the rear wheel well.
 
Improvements over previous incarnation:
Since I have had been utilizing one of these on my 3rd gen for such a long time, I knew what improvements were needed:
 
First of all, this time I wanted to design the box so that it did not overlap onto the cargo liner area whatsoever. The secure mounting of the box, though not permanent by design, does require some work to remove from the vehicle. I do get the back of the rig quite dirty from time to time and being able to pull the cargo liner, (a must have item), out and quickly rinse it off while washing the rig is essential. I will accomplish this by a) notching the box at the front lower corner allowing the husky liner to sit flush with the interior panels and b) keeping the front of the box short, which has the added benefit of allowing the jack compartment door to open with the box in place. These improvements will allow the cargo liner to slide straight out the back without moving the cargo box at all.
 
Secondly I wanted a more refined professional look to the box. This will be accomplished by a) cutting the box flush to the seat back wall, b) making curved and angled cuts for the top, front and side wall so that they sit tight and are scribed precisely to the interior panels, c) get as close a match to the factory carpeting as possible, and d) painting the interior of the box to get rid of the wooden look.
 
Size:
I am not going to provide detailed measurement of each and every one of the boxes panels this time around. There are just too many variables here. Many of the wood pieces need gentle curves which I would not be able to measure. Every brand of cargo liner is slightly different and weather or not you have the double decker option are factors that would come into play.
 
Here are some approximate overall sizes:
  • 25.0" - The legnth as measured on the inside bottom shelf where the items will lay.
  • 18.0" - Overall height which keeps it just below the tonneau cover.
  •  7.0" - The interior width which keeps it outside of the cargo liner.
  •  6.5" - The interior height of the box as measured from the top of the wheel well to the top of the box.
  • 12.5" - The interior height of the box as measured from the front portion which is cutout around the gas tank filler tube.
  • 1,400 - Estimated Cubic inches of interior storage space
     
    Construction:
    I built the original 3rd gen box entirely using a hand saw and making straight cuts only. It worked well with that vehicle with the straight lines of it's cargo area. Clearly that would not work in a 4th gen with it's curved panels. The tools needed for this project include: A jig saw, circular saw, dremel, drill, sliding T-Bevel square, right angle square, steel straight ruler, tape measure, sandpaper, 1" drywall screws and hinges.
     
    What I did do as a starting point is to fabricate every panel out of cardboard first. This allows you to create the curves and angles by trial and error and to later simply trace the parts onto the wood.
     
    I purchased one full 8'x4' sheet of 15/32" pine plywood. This allows for you to mess up a few panels and start again if needed. I am not a carpenter by any means, but I only had to re-do one panel. For the driver side panel (the side up against the curved plastic interior) I purchased a 2'x4' sheet of 1/4" medium density fiberboard (MDF). This allows it to bend and conform to the curved cut of the bottom and front panels.
     

     
    Carpeting:
    I purchased carpeting manufactured by the Miami Corporation. I choose carpeting from their "Multipile" Automotive Trim Carpet line for it's features as well it's close to factory color match. Their Multipile carpet is an "un-backed" automotive carpet, meaning that it has no rubber latex backing like cut-pile carpets do. This will make it not only easy to cut but also facilitates the carpeting to conform and mold aorund the box's corners nicely.
     
    I carpeted all sides of the box, including the bottom and the side facing the interior panel. This is so that the plywood will not rub the plastic interior panels which over time will scuff them and may cause noise.
     
    Here are some specs on the carpeting :
     
  • Item Code: AM25
  • Color: Medium Dark Pewter
  • Content: 100% Polypropylene Pile Carpet
  • Style: Nonwoven won't fray or unravel
  • Backing: Non-Backed Carpet
  • Other: Solution dyed polyester fiber for good colorfastness
  • Other: Resists stains, soiling, molds and mildew
  • Weight: 11.5 oz. Per Square Yard
  • Width: 40" Wide
  • Amount needed for this project: 3 yards
     

    Carpeting

     
    Adhesive:
    The carpeting is mounted to the plywood using a can of spray type adhesive. I was very satisfied with this adhesive so I am documenting it here to remember to use it next time, 8-10 year later on my next box. I don't remember what type of spray glue I used on my 3rd gen box but I was not happy with it. It was messy to use, soaked into the carpeting and let the carpeting slide around too much until it set-up. I went with a heavy duty adhesive this time. It cost a little more and perhaps it was a little overkill as it is strong enough to use on laminates and similar materials, but It was well worth it.
     
    You need to spray both surfaces, the carpet backing, then the wood. It sprays with a nice consistency and does not run. There is very little overspray. You then wait 30 seconds for it to set-up then press the two materials together. You can work with long pieces of carpeting as once you mount the carpeting it doesnt move around much at all, so get it lined up right the first time.
     
    3M Hi-Strength Spray Adhesive 90
  • 17.6 oz. of adhesive in a 24.0 oz. aerosol can
  • High strength, fast contact type adhesive.
  • Adheres polyethylene and polypropylene to wood, metal, and more.
  • Adheres to wood, metal, plastic and decorative laminates.
  • Low soak in keeps more adhesive on the surface to provide better coverage.
  • Low-mist formula bonds fast with a high-temperature resistance.
  • Precise spray control
  • Variable width spray pattern (1"-3").
  • Easiest way to apply adhesive to large areas.
  • Dries transparent.
  • One minute dry time.
     

    Spray Adhesive

     

     
    Mounting:
    The organizer is mounted securely in place yet not permanently. No modifications to the interior or drilling of holes are needed to mount. It allows for a decently quick removal for those rare times that maximum cargo area space is needed. A #10 4" long wood screw and countersunk fender washer is used on the front portion of the box to secure it to a factory threaded screw hole where the grocery bag holder is located. On the rear of the box I installed a small screw eye which is then cable tied to the rear seatback latch. Mount the screw-eye on the passenger side of and slightly above the seatback latch. Then when you tighten down the cable tie, it draws to box nice and snug against the side wall. By positioning the box on the driver side, the box does not block the factory sub-woofer located on the passenger side of the cargo area. By keeping the box's legnth shorter than my 3rd gen box, it remains totally outside of the cargo liner and does not block access to the factory jack storage area either.
     
    There is a pic below that shows how much stuff this box can hold. The 4Runner has numerous other storage areas such as the glove box, center console, built in storage above the wheel wells and the jack compartment. I have other supplies stored in these areas as well. Those areas hold such items as...4D Cell Maglight, road flares, wrenches, bungee cords, work gloves, tire pressure gauge, spare fuses, electrical tape, umbrella, batteries, etc.

    Finally got a pic if my latest storage setup. The bins are from home depot and fit perfect in the cargo tray. All four bins will slide out in the trat for easy loading/unloading. They also have strap slots on each lid edge to keep straps from slipping; a welcome feature this weekend on tray Mtn. Ga.

    I wanted the Rubbermaid Action Packer but none of the stores had any in stock. I didn't want to order online and wait. I just picked up this box from Walmart for a fraction of the price of the Action Packer. It's pretty sturdy and gets the job done. I wanted it for my recovery gear/tools. It was also important to me that it fit beneath the cargo cover as well as easily removable due to my job. I had also posted these in the "What did you do to/in your 5th gen?" thread.

    Modded one of my bins for some easy access to items and making items sitting in bin easier to get to as well.

    Also working on a better tool organization solution for the shallow drawer;)

    I love this topic! I have struggled with what to do for storage in the back area. I have a LE with the third row seating making this more of a problem. Like @1engineer I use my 4runner for just about everything you can imagine, so a permanent solution is not practical for me either. I used to use small rubber bin tied down in the back to hold random items. Now I have gone with a duffle bag.

    I just use 3 large north face base camp duffels. Modular, bomb proof, and freaking huge. Best duffel bags I've ever owned.

    Just to add another Photo to the mix


    I decided on the 35 Gallon Action Packers as I wanted something to fit besides the Fridge. Storage is a huge personal preference, I still love the idea of the ARB drawers but as @1engineer pointed out you loose flexibility when you permanently mount something like those, not to mention the costs is an order of magnitude higher then these. We sleep in the back of the 4runner and normally end up putting our stuff in the tent or on the ground under the truck. The solid construction to me is more flexible (good chairs) and weather resistant then large bags. Other comments

    *Side to side room is fine but front to back you can only recline the rear seats a small amount (minor downside as we normally take the seat bottoms out anyhow.
    *They are tall so as far as organization you really need separate bags etc inside the box other wise it turns into a giant junk chest.....at least its out of site but something to consider.

    Here is my quick and easy to pack & unpack setup. Inside it's all strapped down in case of a roll over or wreck. I don't use the lower seats on trips so I have extra mounting points with the factory lower seat bolts and added D-rings. I have added a few extra interior mounting points as well. I also still use a cargo net over everything else just in case! Here is a pic of some of my setup it's not tied all the way down in the pic since the lower seats are still in.



    This is my current roof top set up as well, cargo boxes are bolted down from the inside.

    It's a Frontrunner bag with two wolf packs in it. It fits perfect where the lower rear seats go and is easy to strap down and secure.

    Joneseyyy,

    What model ARB drawers are you using? I was looking at putting in a couple with the roller floor but it sounds like to do that I will have to move the rear seat up quite a bit. Since I have kids I can't afford to lose that space. Did you have to move the rear seat up much?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    Since then, I can't stand it and always pee in the elevator and porches. For many years already on this site, and finally there. Was a desire to write.

    4Runner cargo area options: 3rd row, sliding cargo deck and empty - with Measurements

    Everyone did not like something, and, of course, the dripping rain. Out of the breadth of his soul, Lesha took a step to the side and gestured: pass, they say, the air. Carriage is served. Two even thanked, the third did not condescend, but this did not really interest Alyosha - even a regiment of unfriendly aunts could not darken.

    Similar news:

    Sit and watch, an inner voice told me, Or don't look. But I watched. The Negro grabbed her legs, squeezed them under his armpits, began to twist his penis, tap on the twitching ass of the. Baby.
